The competition featured fraternity brothers in blackface and kinky wings performing highly stylized choreographed dances to the signature musical piece "Cotton Babes." Kake Walk was eliminated in 1969. All Kake Walkers choreographed their high-stepping dances to the beat of this instrumental piece, which was performed live by the UVM band during the Walk. The...

An episode of "The Fred Waring Show". This variety show is a mixed bag. The highlight is the fun and entertaining "Autumn in New York" sequence (sadly with some sprocket-hole damage).

Painfully corny. Then again maybe you'll like it. Who knows. But it does have the original... favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 3 reviews ) Topics: Classic TV, Television, Minstrel Show, Blackface, Corny, General Electric, GE, Old, Black and...
